HARTFORD, Conn. -- Brian Voelkel scored 12 points to lead Vermont to a 49-43 victory over Hartford Wednesday night in a low-scoring America East game.
The Catamounts (14-7, 7-2), who won for the fifth time in six games, led 22-21 at halftime. Voelkel was the lone Catamount in double figures.
For Hartford (11-10, 4-4), Mark Nwakamma was the only Hawk to score in double figures. He also finished with 12 points, hitting 5 of 10 shots from the floor.
Voelkel, meanwhile, was 3 for 5 from the field, including a 3-pointer. He was also 5 for 6 at the foul line, where Vermont went 10 for 17. Hartford hit just 4 of 10 at the stripe.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
